Waste treatment, disposal, recycling are the major modes of medical waste management.

Medical Waste Management Market

Irradiation, incineration, autoclave, chemical disinfection are among the various methods of medical waste treatment. A majority of medical waste treatment is performed with incineration. In the past medical waste treatment was performed on-site by hospitals, laboratories and healthcare facilities; however, with the mounting expenses of such activities and associated labor involved, contractors began to be hired for treatment, disposal and recycling of medical wastes. It is anticipated that the percentage of on-site medical waste management will drop with more preference for outsourcing of these activities.

The global medical waste management market is studied for the following waste types:

1.   Collective Waste

2.   Infectious waste

3.   Pathological waste

4.   Sharps

5.   Pharmaceutical waste

6.   Genotoxic waste

7.   Chemical waste

8.   Others (Heavy methal, radioative material, pressurized containers etc.)

Medical Waste Management Market
   

General waste that comes from regular healthcare activities comprise 80% of the overall medical waste. The rest of the waste is hazardous material such as infectious materials, radioactive or toxic. A major portion of healthcare waste is non-risk waste when compared to general domestic waste. Such collective waste dominantly comes from administrative functions of healthcare facilities. Hazardous waste contains waste suspected to contain pathogens, human tissue, human fluids, wastes including pharmaceuticals, substances with genotoxic material, chemical substances, gas cylinders and cartridges, unused material from radiotherapy or research, contaminated glassware etc.

The global medical waste management market in terms of management techniques is segmented into:

1.   Non-incineration Processes

a.    Thermal Processes

b.    Chemical-Based Technologies

c.    Irradiative Process

d.   Biological Process

e.    Mechanical Process

2.   Incineration Processes

Medical Waste Management Market

Majority of the medical waste is incinerated, where the process of burning is controlled performed in dedicated incinerators. The most major concern linked with medical waste incinerators is emissions, where a considerable portion of the incinerated waste is plastic and generation of toxic compounds. Considering the specifications of the latest incinerators, majority of harmful compounds from emissions remain in the ash, which is generally disposed in landfills. However, it is expected that the older incinerators will be replaced with other options of on-site incinerators.

In terms of regional distribution, the global medical waste management is studied for North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa markets.

 

Medical Waste Management Market

The detailed regional classification of this market is as follows:

  • North America (U.S. & Canada)
  • Europe (U.K., Germany and Rest of Europe)
  • Asia-Pacific (Japan, China and Rest of Asia-Pacific)
  • Middle East and Africa
  • Latin America

North America and Europe collectively take over 60% of the global market revenue from medical waste management. Stringent regulations in these regions pertaining to waste management and control along with keeping a view on environmental protection are the major factors driving the medical waste management market. Emerging regions of Latin America and Asia-Pacific are rapidly following the footprints of the Europe and North America markets and will progress at the fastest market growth rate.
